Doris Marie Duffin
Doris Marie Duffin, ever gracious and cherished, died peacefully on July 16, 2003 at her La Jolla home surrounded by her beloved family.
Having provided a haven for many, she leaves a legacy of warmth and hospitality for her idea of family extended well into the community. She was born October 7, 1916, in Boise, Idaho to Rose Bagley Eby and Adam Earl Eby.
Doris graduated from Boise High School in 1934. She was an active member of the Honor Society, Senior Class President, and won the Idaho State Women's Championship in Tennis. After high school, she worked 2 years at C.C. Anderson Company to save money for college and continued playing tennis. She was a member and former Queen of Job's Daughters.
At age 18 she joined Eastern Star and Daughters of the Nile, continuing as a lifetime member. Doris attended the University of Idaho from 1936 - 1940 receiving a BS in Business Administration/Ed. She was a member of the Delta Gamma Sorority and worked as the house manager in 1939 and 1940.
When she was a junior at the University of Idaho, Doris met her husband, Lawrence H. Duffin. After she graduated, they married on July 31, 1940. Doris worked at the University for 2 years until Lawrence Duffin graduated from Law School and received his orders to report to Fort Benning.
Doris accompanied Lawrence and took on work wherever they moved, including Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, and Georgia. In 1946, they settled in Rupert, Idaho, where Lawrence began his career as a trial lawyer.
They raised their six children and spent summers fishing and winter weekends skiing at their cabin in Ketchum, Idaho. Friends were always welcome as Doris was pleased that the cabin had enough beds to sleep 24 and she invariably made sure everyone was fed!
The family moved to La Jolla in 1964, spending several summers in San Marcos raising Midnight Queen Bees.
Dividing time between California and Idaho, Lawrence resumed his law practice in Burley, Idaho, and Doris renewed her interest in golf and bridge. In 1984 the 'Bee Farm' became a plant nursery for endangered species. Doris always referred to life with Lawrence as "Never a dull moment!", Doris and Lawrence finally retired to their La Jolla home in 1989.
After her husband's death, Doris continued in her gracious and generous manner opening her home to many.
She was an avid reader, a baseball and football enthusiast, an absolutely terrific mom to her own kids and to many others she took under her wing along the way, and she could almost effortlessly cook for an army (and often did).
As the family matriarch for a large and extended family, she will be deeply missed. Her husband, Lawrence H. Duffin, and one brother, Richard Earl Eby, preceded her in death.
She is survived by her children: Linda Duffin Elliott, Lake Elsinore, CA; Lawrence H.
